The sun is shining and it’s starting to feel a lot like summer, so we thought it was a good time to look ahead to what’s going on this summer, as there’s loads of brilliant things being announced all the time.
There’s a packed schedule of live music events, including over 20 stellar acts at Starlite 2016 including Robert Plant, Santana, Tom Jones and Alejandro Sanz. As if that wasn’t enough, Seal is performing at the Puente Romano in July and Simply Red will be in Fuengirola in August.
The beach clubs will be opening their doors at the end of this month, with regular events starting in May and ramping up throughout June, July and August. Once the beach clubs are open, there’s always something going on!
If you’re an art lover, head to Malaga to enjoy the summer shows, which include Jackson Pollock’s Mural at the Picasso Museum.
Foodies should make a beeline for Fuengirola for the Feria de los Pueblos at the end of April, and the Malaga Gastronomy Festival from the 29th April to 5th May, not to mention Estepona’s great ham festival in August. Read more about food festivals on the Costa del Sol
Remember that the ferias begin with Marbella’s Feria in the second week in June and continue on throughout July and August, so keep your eyes peeled for your nearest one.
Don’t miss the San Juan celebrations on the evening of the 23rd June, it is a really magical experience where people light bonfires on the beach and party all night long. We recommend heading down to Sabinillas for the coast’s biggest San Juan party with bonfires like art works.
You will be the envy of all your friends living on the Costa del Sol in the summer and there’s always something going on. It’s such a treat to be able to just head to the beach or to the pool after work, enjoy sundowners at your favourite beach bar, or stroll down the promenade late into the night on one of the many balmy summer evenings.
If you’re planning to move over to the Costa del Sol before summer to enjoy all of this, then don’t delay in sorting out your long term rental property. Once the summer starts (from June onwards) then most landlords will choose to let their property short term and that will be a lot more expensive for you – a week’s holiday rental is generally the same price as a whole month long term. Please contact us for a list of good long term rentals in your preferred area before May to ensure you get a good selection, or browse our properties online. We look forward to hearing from you!
